Nature Festival | 100+ events | 10 Days
From our own back gardens to the majesty of the Flinders, nature is central to who we are as South Australians.
More than 90% of us get out into our parks and beaches each year, and the challenges of 2020 have only further highlighted how critical nature is for our health and wellbeing.
A new festival for South Australia
The Nature Festival is a 10 day program of activities and experiences all dedicated to celebrating South Australian nature in positive, creative, and meaningful ways.
The festival features a diverse program of free and ticketed activities provided by local artists, environmental organisations, and nature connection practitioners. It’s an ‘open access’ festival, so anyone can apply to run an event.
With more than 80 events for all ages, the Nature Festival is full of creative ways to connect with others and to set out on adventures near and far.
Why a nature festival?
In a time of climate change, bushfires, and global pandemics, now more than ever we need to cultivate a deeper relationship with nature as a society.
That relationship is fundamental to our personal wellbeing, core to who we are as a state, and the foundation of all of the other work that we undertake to protect and steward nature.
Plus, being in nature feels good. We know it intuitively, Aboriginal culture values it explicitly, and modern science has more recently begun to quantify the wellbeing benefits of nature.
We think that’s worth celebrating, and we hope you’ll join us.
